Cannot preview .docx files in Windows File Explorer?

Using LibreOffice (x64), I cannot preview any docx documents in Windows File Explorer. Steps to reproduce:

  • Create and save a .docx file using Writer.
  • Navigate to the file’s folder using File Explorer.
  • Click on it while the preview pane (alt+p) is enabled.
  • The preview pane will say “No preview available.”

It also does this with .odt files. I do not have Microsoft Office installed.
